As a fan of The Rules, I like the clean look and easy access to my gear in my jersey pocket rather than using a saddle bag.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
WaterField Designs, a local San Francisco manufacturer of laptop sleeves, bags and cases for digital gear, enters the cycling market with the introduction of the Cycling Ride Pouch, an upscale toolkit sized to fit perfectly into a bike jersey pocket. Inspired by the cycling collective Velominati’s Rule #31—“Spare tubes, multi-tools and repair kits should be stored in jersey pockets”—the new premium leather Pouch holds all of these, a smartphone, credit cards, and cash in one organized, lightweight case.
“As a fan of The Rules, I like the clean look and easy access to my gear in my jersey pocket rather than using a saddle bag,” said Gary Waterfield, company owner. “In collaboration with our friends at ELEVEN Velo of Australia, we designed a riding case that even when fully loaded is so comfortable that you don’t even notice it’s there after a few minutes on your bike.”
The Cycling Ride Pouch is a leather wallet-style repair kit with a clear smartphone window that allows users to access texts, Strava or MapMyRide without removing the phone. The Ultrasuede®-lined main compartment holds a tube, tools, air cartridge, tire levers, and patches. Two internal pockets hold cash, ID and cards; and a scratch-free padded slot fits an iPhone 5, the larger Samsung S4 or a similarly-sized phone. Durable YKK self-locking zippers unzip on three sides so the Pouch lies flat on the road during repairs. The US-Made pouch is sized to fit exactly into a cycling jersey pocket and to lie flat for ultimate comfort.
The Cycling Ride Pouch specifications:
- Brown or black full-grain, distressed leather sourced from few remaining American tanneries
- Lightly padded smartphone slot with clear window allows phone access without removal
- Interior pockets for cash, cards and ID
